Valentine Exchange

Hi Sweeties,

Well I have just realised that I havent shown you the lovely Valentine Exchange I received from Loriana from the Sanman Board.

It arrived just after Valentine's Day, and Loriana stitched me this ornament which is a Lizzie Kate design.

As you can my dear friend sent me a lot of wonderful goodies in the exchange.

Sadly though our Post Office is very disrespectful of precious packages, and the parcel arrived torn open and most of the goodies had dissappeared. They also tore the cardboard frame around the ornament that Loriana made. So I received the ornie and the Valentine's Day Ribbon only. Bad, bad post office.

And here are the ornaments I made for Loriana. This Rose Heart ornie was from an old CS&CC magazine. I really loved making the cording adding beads between it.

And this little cutie is my own Hardanger and Bullion Rose design that I made into a little padded ornie.

This was also my first time edging an ornie in rouching. Its a finish I will be using again soon.

Enjoy and I hope everyone has had a wonderful week.!
Hugs and Happy Stitching,

Happy Birthday to Me..!

Happy Birthday to me..! lol Well it was my birthday on 1st March, and I've got to say that even though I am another year older I had a pretty good birthday.!

My ----- spoilt me by getting me some of my favourite things. Some yummy chocolates....drool, drool, yummy yum.!

Four of my favourite Cross Stitch Magazines, and 3x new DVD's, 'Night at the Museum 2', 'Hotel for Dogs', and our new favourite comedy show, 'The Big Bang Theory'

----also got me a delicious White Chocolate Mud Cake and musical candles.! lol. He also got pink hair spray since I love the color pink so much and sprayed my blonde/brown hair, PINK....! hehee. I look like the Pink Stitching Candy Flosser.! lmao.

-----also invited one of his coworkers over on my birthday, a very lovely lady named Corrine, who came to teach me how to Tat..! I was so happy, as I've been wanting to learn how to Tat for years but never got around to it.

Corrine was so sweet and helpful, she taught me the Modern Stitch and now I'm Tatting my little heart out, practicing my stitches and techniques so I can move on to Motifs, and Edgings. Corrine also gave me this pretty pink Flower bouquet for my birthday. It has Orchids on the bottom which are just coming into bloom.

Hopefully I'll have an update on my Tatting in the next week.!

Hugs to all,
